Some manufacturers like to exaggerate the specs. LOL But if it'll make you feel futureproof, go for the 4GB upgrade. Just don't expect major gains. 😉 Personally, I'd invest in a SSD. It'll give you noticeable performance in every aspect whether loading Windows or loading times for games. 😛

Correct. However, with the 4 GB upgrade being pretty cheap, and the disassembly of the G46 being complicated, I'd actually recommend doing both at the same time. 8 GB can be nice, going beyond that is probably the point of diminishing returns for most people. I have 16 GB in my laptop, but I also happen to compile the LINUX kernel a lot, and run VMs on a regular basis (hence the need for more RAM).
can low RAM be a bottleneck for games that require at recommended settings a high amount? for ex i have 4 gb, the witcher 3 has 8gb at the recommended requirements .... will it actually use all those 8gb or will my 4gb suffice?
